Dear Professor, Advisor, Faculty or Staff,

The Institute for Pure and Applied Mathematics (IPAM) at the
University of California Los Angeles (UCLA) runs a unique summer
program for undergraduate students. The Research in Industrial
Projects for Students (RIPS) provides an opportunity for exceptional
students in math and related disciplines to work in teams on real
world research projects proposed by a sponsor from industry or a
national lab. Sponsors have included Pixar, Microsoft, Symantec, Los
Alamos, the Aerospace Corporation, Amgen, Arete, IBM, Standard &
Poor's, Jet Propulsion Lab, and many others. The RIPS web site at
http://www.ipam.ucla.edu/rips/ gives the full details including a link
to the online application. We encourage all bright, young students to
apply, especially women and minorities.

This is an educational and very exciting two month program near the
heart of Los Angeles at one of the premiere educational institutions
in the United States. If accepted the program covers the student’s
travel, housing and most meals, and offers a generous stipend.
Students immerse themselves in research and learn how to deal with
real world problems.

In addition to RIPS in Los Angeles, IPAM will offer for the second
time RIPS-Hong Kong in 2013  in partnership with the Hong Kong
University of Science and Technology.  This is an exciting opportunity
for U.S. undergrads to work with students from Hong Kong / China on
projects sponsored by companies based in the region.  English is the
only language required for participation.  The format is the same as
RIPS-LA; two American and two Chinese students will form a team.

The deadline for applications is February 12, 2013. Please refer your
students to the site and encourage them to apply. (Note: graduating
seniors are eligible for all programs; international students may
apply for RIPS-LA only).

I have attached a PDF poster with this email. If you’d like to request
copies of this poster or for more information on RIPS, please email
rips2013 at ipam.ucla.edu     or call me at 310-825-4755.

Best regards,

Dimi Mavalski
